Dairy Promoted at Alabama Dietetic Association Meeting
On March 1-3, the Alabama Dietetic Association held their annual conference in Birmingham and SUDIA hosted the welcome reception and provided a guest speaker. Lauren Silvio, a sports dietitian for Auburn University, spoke to over 75 attendees about the role of dairy in the diets of Auburn athletes. Silvio focuses on the football players and how they can refuel after games, workouts and practices. She recommends protein options from nonmeat sources and reports that milk, yogurt and cheese are their favorite choices. Staff members Mary Martin Nordness, Jana Miller and Laura Marbury were in attendance to network with dietitians from across the state and share more information about the health benefits of dairy.
